Welcome to Year 1
Happy New Year! I am looking forward to the exciting work we have got planned this half term.
Our topic is 'The Enchanted Woodland' We will be reading a range of stories around this theme. If your child has a book or poem that fits in with this theme and would like to bring it in to share with the class, they are more than welcome to. Our Science work will be about plants and animals. We are starting a 'nature table' and contributions are encouraged. It is always good to take the time to be curious about the world we live in. We will also be attempting to plant and grow a few things of our own.
During our computing sessions we will be learning about photography and taking pictures of plants and trees.
This term we will begin to learn 'Spanish.' Today ( 13/01/20) we have learnt to say hello, good morning and good evening. It's been a fabulous start and the children have really enjoyed it.
PE will be Tuesday and Wednesday. Also, on Tuesday the children will be having on hour's outdoor learning activity. This will take place with Miss Potter and Miss Godwin. Please could you provide a change of warm clothes and boots/shoes that you don't mind getting muddy.
If you have any queries please come and see me. I am always happy to help
Thanks for all your support.
Our Christmas performance is on Wednesday 11th December. We look forward to seeing you there.
This half term in history we have been learning lots of facts about the Queen. We have made information posters with flaps and sliders. We have been doing computing and learning so many skills on the computer. Look at the side panel for photographs.
Welcome to Year 1!
I look forward to getting to know your children and meeting you all. You are the experts on your children so if there is anything you feel I should know about them please do not hesitate to send me a note via the home/school diary or make an appointment with myself.
The School day
Our day begins at 8:50am when the door to our classroom will open. Please ensure your children arrives promptly as lessons begin at 9am. The school day finishes at 3:30pm.
Please ensure your child comes prepared for the day. We have PE every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure that your children come with the appropriate full kit for every session. It can be so disruptive to everyone’s learning when children come without. We assume if your child is well enough to attend school, they are well enough to do PE, unless you tell us otherwise.
Our behaviour system in school, looks at the children's attitude towards learning. For example: Do they bring everything they need for school every day? Are they listening and following instructions> Are they maintaining the school rules? Every day your child will start off on green on a chart, this means they are having a 'perfect day.' It is totally acceptable for a child to stay on green all day,every day. However, there will times when your child will have an 'Amazing Day' or even better. This means your child will move their name up the chart to 'Blue' or 'Purple of even 'Gold.' They will receive different awards accordingly. If your child breaks a school rule or is not doing the right thing then their name will move down the chart accordingly too. This may result in them being sent to another class for 10 minutes, missing a playtime or being sent to the Deputy Headteacher. If they are sent to the Deputy Headteacher you will be notified by a phone call. All children have the ability to rectify behaviour and move back to 'Green' throughout the day.
Please see the homework page to find ways to support your child.
If you have any questions , queries or concerns please come and see me or write a note in the diary.
Thank you for your support,
Karen Yeoman- class teacher
